Time Calculation

My boss is being a jerk. Tho I'm salaried, I need to keep a journal of time in/time out and I'd like Excel to do the work for me.

For example
Time In 8:30
Time Out 5:00
That's normal

Anything over 5:00, I'd like Excel to calculate and place in a cell. Anything Less than 8.5, place in another cell. So the cell headings would say "Over" and "Under" respectively. Make sense?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'd be surprised if there were no free online services that did that for you.. -Or excel sheets people have done for fun already. Or phone apps maybe..

nice example, Wayne ~ Over is supposed to be over 5:00 though, not 8.5, so here is the formula for D3 to drag down:
=IF(D3>TIME(5, 0, 0), D3-TIME(5, 5, 0), "")

adding on to Doug's comment ... if you want Date and Time in the same cell, enter Date, then space, then Time

Perhaps, but after 5:00pm is >8.5hours.

I guess I interpreted that a little differently than you did ... not that my interpretation is right though ~ just offering my 2¢
